Human by Chance?

Channel: Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Documentary, Science

Human by Chance?

Discover the secrets of humanity's advanced skill set and predominance on Earth.

If we compare ourselves with our genetically closest living relatives, the chimpanzees, we have few physical advantages.

We are far weaker, cannot move nearly as fast, and do not have the same climbing capabilities.

Instead, humans excel in areas such as architecture, religion, science, language, writing, art, culture and ideas.

These achievements are due to our larger brain that contains billions of neurons.

It was the rapid growth of our brain, originating about 2-million years ago, that allowed us to be the predominant species of the world.

What caused this rapid growth of our cerebral cortex?

Researchers worldwide have asked this question for many years, but now there finally seems to be an answer.

The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden seems to have found answers to this phenomenon.

For the first time in history, a research team succeeded in making embryonic brains of marmosets grow by using the human-specific gene ARHGAP11B.

The team led by Dr. Wieland Huttner has not only discovered the reason for our larger brains, but has also discovered that humans owe their tremendous cognitive abilities to a coincidence.

This coincidence is a point mutation that occurred hundreds of thousands of years ago in one of our early ancestors, on this exact gene.

When could this random mutation have taken place? Whom did it affect? Which factors caused it? What developments have been promoted by this?

In the run-up of the latest publications, the MDR team accompanied neuroscientists Dr. Huttner and his research team on their journey to find answers.

The film presents the decisive moments of their groundbreaking study and illustrates the current research results.

Learn about the special features of ARHGAP11B and discover the secrets to our advanced brains and predominance on Earth.
